    User Account Control Settings


    The four options available under User Account Control Settings are not the same options I had before I reset my laptop which are described in the link under said settings:Tell me more about User Account Control settings. I have Windows 10 free version. The option I want is not available: Notify me only when apps try to make changes to my computer default Don't notify me when I make changes to Windows settings. Recommended if you use familiar apps and visit familiar websites. I have attached a screenshot of the options. Also, why must I be logged in as Administrator to select either of the last 2 options? Speaking of Administrator, I do not fully understand Users, Standard, Administrator, etc. I amthe only person who will ever use my laptop and I do not take my laptop with me and connect tostrange. Whether it is true or not, I was told I should not sign in as Administrator because it isn't safe. What is that suppose to mean? Is there a user for me so I may have more control instead of having to get Admins okay every time I want to make a protected settings change? Thank you. I await your response.

    User Account Control Settings

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
